About Lara Biyuts ( @LaraBnovelist ). Dance with Lady in Red, seduce the Vamp in the little black dress, talk to Lady with a Lap-Dog, because all this is the author of the historical paranormal novella “A Handful of Blossoms”, and the writer is not a phantom. Absolutely fantastical. A great job of ardor and patience has allowed Lara B to succeed in her next work, the Steampunk Edwardian era mystery novel “Through the Baltic Looking-Glass”.
